PRICE - William Sherman Bradshaw passed away on Nov. 26, 2013 after a short and valiant battle with cancer.

He was born near Indianola, Okla., to Samuel Nicholas and Verna Brisendine Bradshaw on May 3, 1926.

Married Jacqueline Oletha Roberts in McAlistar, Okla., in 1947. She preceded him in death.

Three children were born to them; William S. Bradshaw, Jr. and Ronald James Bradshaw were born in Rocky Ford, Colo., and Luann in Hanford, Calif. He has two grandsons and was preceded in death by one granddaughter. Bill was especially close to his grandson Nicholaus Bradshaw of Sacramento and they maintained telephone contact several times a week. All family visited Bill in Wellington and Price and his son Ron has come several times to help out in the past few years.

Bill worked many years as a manager for Safeway, then later was a roving manager for Raleys in Northern California. He later opened the Southwest Turquoise store in Auburn, Calif. He then moved to the Price area where he managed the Indian Store on Main Street until he retired.

Bill lived several years in Wellington, where he developed many close friendships before moving to Price a short time ago. Bill was noted for his appreciation and understanding of American Indian arts, and found many beautiful pieces of jewelry, pottery and weaving on many of his trips to New Mexico and Arizona. Many people in the community have acquired some of the finest American Indian artwork from Bill through the years. He was a dedicated friend to many both in Price and Wellington and is remembered for his cheerful friendship and service in the community. He was a loyal member of the Price United Methodist Church and hardly ever missed services. He maintained a close and lasting friendship with Pastor Les.

At Bill's request there will be no services. Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price where friends are always welcome daily and may share memories of Bill online at
